    This is exactly what I expected after the last 4 years. I say let it happen. I say the Republicans need to hold their ground and fight back. Obama plans to not compromise and then when the S#!& hits the fan to blame Republicans for not compromising. It is the last 4 years all over again and the end results will be the same. Republicans also need to not raise the debt ceiling. They should have learned over the past 4 years that Democrats are fine with not passing a budget and allowing the normal hikes in spending to occur. The Republicans should put the message out now and make it clear to the President and the Senate that the debt ceiling will not be raised and a balanced budget needs to be written to prevent disaster.

    Why did anyone believe for one iota of a second that he was going to keep his word? Based on what? His past record? We shall now reap what others sowed for us.

    Obama doesn't give a shit about America - only his constiuancy. I agree that the republicans should be absolutely intractable about raising the debt ceiling. Sooner or later the shit will hit the fan - better sooner. Liberals need to feel some real fiscal pain, and maybe then they will understand the consequences of too much spending. It amazes me why spending more money than what you have is such an enigma:confused:

    Why should Obama compromise?

    He holds all the cards

    If he does nothing the Bush tax cuts expire and we get automatic spending cuts across the board. More revenue in and less money spent...that is how you balance a budget

    Obama has already offered a tax compromise to save tax cuts for the middle class

    If Republicans want to save some of their cherished programs, they had better be prepared to compromise

    Hard to fathom how the results of spending more than one has is not easily understood.

    I am all for the fiscal cliff.

    I think it would be absolutely great.
